Parshas Chukas

The Power of an Individual

"Really?? Rabbi Uri Lapolianski, the mayor of Jerusalem, started singlehandedly, Yad Sarah (the free medical loan society, which is the largest voluntary organization in Israel, with over 100 branches) !! "

Rabbi Yehoshua ben Kabbasai said "I always thought that when the Torah said 'the pure shall sprinkle (purify) the impure' (Bimidbar 19:19-See Para Aduma) it meant that one pure person could purify one impure person. Then I learned from the 'treasure of Yavneh' that one person could purify many impure people." (Yerushalmi Dmai 3:4) Rav Meir Shapiro zt"l, (the founder of the Daf Yomi) explained that when the second Temple was being destroyed, Rav Yochanan ben Zakai prayed that the sages of Yavneh should be spared. He asked for this because he felt that even this relatively small number of sages would be able to revitalize the entire Jewish people !!

Don't sell yourself short. Never underestimate the power of an individual !!

Have a great Shabbos !!

Rabbi Chaim Flom
